This is a newish hotel at Tanjong Pagar. It is about 5 mins outdoor walk to the MRT station. This hotel is part of the Carlton Hotel group - don't mistake this with the Ritz-Carlton. There are three Carlton hotels in Singapore and this is the newest one.
I have stayed here for 3 weeks and have found this to be a pleasant hotel - good location, fair price, reasonable service. What it is lacking is 24 hours laundry service and in-room dinning. This may not be important for some people but as a seasoned business travellers, I absolutely need this.
The room is reasonable size with queen bed, view to the adjacent building. Nice big flat screen TV but lack sports channels - there was no world-cup or F1GP. Bathroom is nice and clean with walk-in shower and full size bath tub. In-room Wi-Fi is fast with strong signal.
The gym is tiny and lacks equipment. I don't recall seeing any free weights. The swimming pool however is reasonable size - 25m? However, it is surrounded by all the high-rise next door so you feel very much you are being watched.
I have not eaten at the restaurant and cannot comment on the service and quality. However, in-room dinning is rather disappointing - very few choices and mostly not available after 11pm. At this time of the night, Maxwell food center is the only choice which is a good 10 mins walk away.
Overall, this is a nice hotel if you just want to sleep and shower, It is a comfortable and clean place. Don't expect any wow factor.
